"Horse Hitchings, Marriage Vows and Golf Links"

So Pleasanton used to be some sort of farming town in the past, I say ignorantly. The Fairgrounds are a big reminder of this.
For example, in August they will have a yearling sale here.

Apparently, people also get married here. After all, where better to get hitched then where you hitched that yearling to your truck last year? I kid.

The other thing about the Alameda Fairgrounds is that it reminds you that Pleasanton is in Alameda not Contra Costa County. This area always feels more like Contra Costa County to me—more like Walnut Creek and Concord than Oakland and Berkeley.

There is also a big golf course on the eastern end of the neighborhood.

So pretty much, there is not much here for me.
Pros
  • Good For Farmers
  • Good For Golfers
Cons
  • They Are Just Fairgrounds
Recommended for
  • Country Lovers
